  1. Always Near

    Don’t cry that I am lost.
    Be not sad to feel not my touch.
    If you listen you will
    hear my voice in the wind.
    Feel my hand on your shoulder with the morning sun.
    Feel the cleansing rain as I quench the flowers thirst so they may bloom.
    See me as you glance behind you and hear my foot falls on the gravel path.
    I am always near as your heart beat
    and your smile.

  2. I am so sorry to hear about Tommy’s death. Although we haven’t spend a lot of time together in our adult lives, I always remember looking up to him as a kid. I do appreciate that he and the family came to family events from time to time and I will miss talking to him. My prayers are with you.
